"Dennis played for my Mom's 51st surprise birthday party. He was WONDERFUL! Everyone raved about him, and several people wanted his contact information for their own parties! He was so much fun, everyone danced all night and no one wanted the music to stop! He sounded exactly like Jimmy Buffet and kept the party lively! I would recommend him again in an instant and will absolutely be calling him again for future events!"
